Celebrity Estate Lessons – Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg

I know what you’re thinking: “Wait, when did he die? How did I miss it!?”

It’s okay, Snoop Dogg is still alive. Or at least he was at the time of this writing.

Okay, so now you’re wondering why I’m writing about Snoop Dogg's estate plan.

Well, we like to highlight colorful and innovative estate planning approaches here and after you read this I’m sure you’ll agree that it doesn’t get more colorful than Snoop’s estate plan.

That plan: there isn’t one. According to him, he’ll be dead and doesn’t care.

That’s not the end of his plan, though. In an ideal world, Snoop plans to be reincarnated as a butterfly so he can watch the chaos unfold. As he says in his own words, "I come back and fly around and look at all these [silly people] fighting over my money and [things], like, 'Look at all these dumb [silly people].' Ha!” We hope you’ll forgive us for cleaning his colorful language up a bit for the purposes of our family-friendly post.

At Harrison Estate Law, we don’t advocate this as a good approach for your estate, particularly if you have a wife and kids, like Snoop does. We definitely think you should contact an estate planning attorney, like us, to make sure your documents are drafted properly.
